I find day 2 is usually the hardest...I don't know why.
Maybe it's because I am not going to be seeing any progress yet.
I did very well yesterday...extremely well in fact.
And today-if say, I went over by 50 calories, what would be the harm?
50 often leads to 100 or 200.
Then it's 'well, I will start over tomorrow'.
momentum builds on itself...and so does stultification.
One bad day often leads to another...I know, I have been there...
MY Worst excuse ever, "I have paperwork and will be up late, so I will just hose this bag of chips and
START OVER TOMORROW...LOL.
So, even if I am tired (which I am)
Have a lot of work to do (which I do) .
I have eaten 850 calories today....that means I have 550 calories for dinner.
I have to spend them carefully.
If I eat over by 50, I can rationalize doing 100 and then so on.
And all the hard work of the previous day is gone...
I have to be honest and realize that today is all I can control.
When I start over again, I lose 2 days...The day you started and the day you started over...
When I could have been three days in and on a roll.
That decision to eat or not is mine.
I CAN eat anything and everything I want.
But I choose not to.
Because I am not where I want to be...
pictures to prove it...
As you can see, I put my weight on in the middle like an old dog. lol.
anywhoozle...The Day I am on...is just a number...
I will not play mind games to justify eating when I know what my cap is.
I want to reach my goal.
and I will.
Today was an excellent day with exercise.
I burned 500 calories with a combination of walking, stairmaster, and situps and lower body weights.
I will be eating baked chicken and a crapload of squash and zuchinni for dinner.
I will be going to bed a little hungry and waking up a little more certain.
That's how this business works.
success builds on success...just don't talk yourself out of winning.
Hang in there guys,
